Three Aberdeen area students are spending their college spring break performing in Israel with the Master Chorale from the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T). Robert Anderson of Pierpont, Jenny Hartung of Hoven, and Steven Trefz of Onaka are presenting concerts with fellow SDSM& T singers in Galilee, Jerusalem, and Bethlehem during their two- week concert tour of Israel. Dr. Susan L. Reid, Director of Choral Activities, conducts the concerts.
Anderson is a 1995 graduate of Langford High School and is currently a senior physics major at South Dakota Tech. Graduates of Hoven High School, Hartung and Trefz are respectively sophomore industrial engineering and freshman mathematics majors at South Dakota Tech.
The Master Chorale students also are joining a group of SDSM& T United Campus Ministry students and community members during spring break to tour Israel, do service work and learn about the region’s religious and cultural heritage. The group will be working at a YMCA or Hope School in Bethlehem or Nazareth. Site they will be visiting include the Sea of Galilee, Mount Carmel, Nazareth, Sepphoris, Jordan River, Wadi Hamman, Jordan Valley, Jericho, Qumran, and Jerusalem. Each night native speakers will share religious and cultural information about the area.
